What a super find. Helpful and friendly staff in beautiful surroundings and well presented food. Then there are the cakes!!!! Outstanding Oh and they make their own chocolate. Make sure you visit.......... if you don’t you only have yourself to blame.

I know there is more here than just donuts, and it all looks so good! I was craving a donut and they make a good one! It all looks so good and would have gotten more if I could!

The woman who served me handled the pasties without gloves or 'putting paper' over them and then handled money which was disgustingly filthy. I asked for a tiffin and was told I'd got the last one and it was very stale.

As a Scot who no longer lives in Scotland, a trip to Fisher and Donaldson is a nostalgic delight. All the cakes you remember from childhood - if only you could try them all! Little coffee shop is lovely. Great coffee and fabulous bacon rolls....More

We lived in St Andrews for many years and F&D stocked Fudge Doughnuts long before any of the chain bakeries discovered them. It is still as good today and prices are still more than the chains, but worth the expense!

F and D's is pretty much the first place we go to when in St Andrews. The bread, rolls, pies etc are great, but it is the selection of cakes and donuts that make it so very special. The fresh cream gateaux are amazing -...More
